CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians will be without cleanup hitter Franmil Reyes for between five and seven weeks because of an internal oblique strain.

Reyes was placed on the 10-day injured list before Sunday’s game against Minnesota.

The designated hitter left Saturday’s game with the injury, which the Indians initially called a strained left abdominal muscle.

It occurred while he was fouling off a pitch.

Reyes’ absence will be a major setback for Cleveland’s offense, which has struggled most of the season.

He leads the Indians with 29 RBIs and is second with 11 homers.
